    I know we still have some time but I imagine a majority of us are taking or have taken the TEAS and are getting ready to get ready for the Spring 2020 application period !! Just thought I could give us a spot to chat, I know I have used the older threads from other years to help me prepare as well! I take my TEAS (first time) Monday! What is everyone else up to?!

    Ugh yes I am so sad too. We were supposed to move to a large hospital here for this second 8 weeks and I was SUPER excited to make my way to the ortho floor as I have decided that it has my heart. We are currently only in med surg 1 clinicals though so I dont know if it's going to be the same for our ENTIRE nursing program for the rest of the semester or just those of us in semester 1 but hopefully we will actually get the email tomorrow and I can tell you more. Virtual is NOT the same. We already had some of that with Shadowhealth and UGH. I want the real patients. I loves doing that at the LTC/rehab facility and I'm going to miss it
  3. Our Spring break has been extended for another week, the following week is online only. They SAID any clinicals and labs can be done in groups 10 or less so unless the facility bars us from going I THINK my clinicals will be okay because our group is exactly 10. Lab I am unsure how they will play that out as the class is pretty large. They so far have added one week onto the end of the semester to make this week off up. I do wonder how that will affect those in my current semester who are taking a Summer semester. I hope this doesnt last very long though... the thought of taking these classes online is just blah.

    First Semester Nursing School - Tips??

    I'm only a month in but so far I have learned you will probably need to ADJUST your learning style a bit while in. I have needed to anyway, I practice millions of questions BUT getting used to taling notes on my own before lecture is hard because I have to remind myself we are NOT just spitting the info back out.

    Dang. I thought DavyDo was visiting us
  7. I love you wuzzie, I love when i see your comments. This entire discussion reminds me of one I had recently with a bunch of MOTHERS who claimed the measles were LAUGHABLE and we dont need vaccines for it anymore. Just because we aren't seeing and remembering how dangerous these things can be does not mean we should be discrediting public health and safety, especially when that is my (future) job. To be advocating for the health of the public.

    Also if you do get stuff done at CVS, like I got my flu shot there, you have to take the paperwork with you to your doctors office so THEY can sign off on it, apparently the paperwork from the pharmacy isnt enough

    Thank you! And double thank you! I'm going to try to get my drug test done when I am up IN FW monday as that's the closest location and it IS my campus however for just a drive there it's about 45 to 50 minutes anyway. Also for anyone else who didnt see, make sure you download and print the actual physical form FROM CastleBranch because its 5 pages of stuff to print and submit and the thing they emailed is only 2 pages I think. I didnt know that until it was mentioned here

    I'm not sure about your campus but ours required us to have this stuff done by orientation Sorry it didnt quote you. But yes ours said get it done by our orientation date. It is my understanding that for most of us the only thing we actually need done is the TB test. Your physician, if you have been in indiana this time should be able to pull up your vax record through CHIRP or you can find it yourself through CHIRP. If that is not possible you will need a titers, or like for me I dont want to pay for titers, and I had chicken pox as a kid so I am just getting the vaccines for that. *** and sorry again you literally said you didnt get vaccinated here so you should be okay with the titers to show immunity ***

I am trying to get my drug test knocked put by next week as well just need to confirm with LabCorp about whether or not I need to make an appointment or if I can just drop in Also my physical form appeared to only be 1 page.....

    Nothing against the advisors but I honestly think they have noooo clue what is happening so that's all they can say.

    I emailed my dean of nursing, I dont know who else to ask anymore. This is absolutely insane.

    I agree, it's a hazing lol I Just feel terrible because I have an email straight from my advisor stating SUNDAY so I've been telling everyone!! Oh well. At least it's not another week for round one to start.

    For anyone not in the group or who hasnt seen it yet, someone spoke with their advisor and they said that we will get emails tomorrow, before noon we should know and apparently it was supposed to have been tomorrow all along

    Since I'm assuming nothing is going to happen today, yall let us know if you hear anything or if you talk to anyone tomorrow who can tell you what's going on!!
  21. Kotylynne

    Ivy Tech Spring 2020 Hopefuls

    Yeah it's usually supposed to be starting at 9, all the time stamps on past emails are like 9:04, 9:08, 9:14

    I know!! I guess the only plus I have is, at least it is a sunday and not a Saturday if things are going to get messed up because then we dont have an extra day of waiting and wondering. By tomorrow there will be people we can call and email to find out what happened
  23. Kotylynne

    Ivy Tech Spring 2020 Hopefuls

    Ivy Tech Spring 2020 Hopefuls
